Thomas “Ted” Cordery

A leading northern California soccer official from the 1950s to the 1970s.

Cordery was secretary of the California Soccer Association for 20 years after being elected to that position shortly after his retirement as a player in the 1950s. He also served as a national junior cup commissioner and a national cups coordinator. His playing career in the San Francisco Soccer League lasted for 21 years. Most of that time was spent with the Rovers, who won eight consecutive San Francisco league titles from 1934 to 1941, and it ended with brief stints with Mercury, Olympic Club and Viking.

Inducted in 1975.
